Tourist Map of Greece (Very Large, 1952)
2 Tourist Map of Greece (Very Large, 1952)
Athens, Greece National Tourist Office of Greece 1952 Folds Very good condition 
The thing I like about folded maps is that moment when it unfolds in all its glory -- especially if the colors are strong and the size is huge. This one is THAT one -- yellow and blue domination and a whopping 28" across and 34" tall. When folded it measures 4-1/2" x 9-1/2". A former owner wrote his name on the top in pencil, but I never like to erase that sort of thing, but you can if you want. There's also a travel stamp that makes it look official.

Greek Island Embroideries 1980, Macmillan, Susan L.
6 Macmillan, Susan L. Greek Island Embroideries 1980
Boston, Mass. Museum of Fine Arts Boston 1980 soft cover Very Good 
Beautiful catalog which extols the virtues of the fabric arts of the Greek Islands. It measures 8"x9-1/2" and appears unread though former owner's name is written very small at the top of the first page. Pages are not numbered, but the plates are (both blacl and white and color) and these number 42. Embroideries in the exhibition derive from Epirus and the Ionian Islands, the Northern islands, the Cyclades, and some unknown islands.

7 Morley, Christopher "It's A Kind of Memorabilia" A Letter About the Trojan Horse (Christopher Morley 1937)
U.S.A. Privately printed 1937 Card cover Very good condition 
This is one of those items collectors seek to augment a collection of a favorite author's books. Christopher Morley, best known for Parnassus on Wheels and The Haunted Bookshop, penned this letter to F.P. Frazier of J.B. Lippincott about another book he wrote -- "The Trojan Horse". The booklet is a contemplation on the process of writing and the thoughts that drove the book forward. Morley unabashedly loved writing and admitted in these 16 pages that writimg the letter was fun. The booklet is very clean and nice and measures 5"x7-1/2".

Greek Islands Cookbook (1984), Petousis, Ann
9 Petousis, Ann Greek Islands Cookbook (1984)
U.S.A. Self-published 1984 Card cover Very Good condition 
Very handsome cookbook illustrated charmingly by the author who begins her book with a brief close-up of each island. After that comes the recipes -- YES, there's baklava!-- but also stuffed grape leaves, spinach pies, Greek meatballs, mousaka, lamb stew with fillo (phyllo), Easter bread, St. Basil's bread and many more. Book measures 6" x 8-1/2" and has 203 pages. Binding is with a plastic comb which has no breaks. The only fault is a faint stain to the outer edge of the front cover near the corner and the same on the next page. Overall quite nice.
